This book was very helpful to me as a recent graduate. It provides exercises and advice. This book is updated every year. The new 2012 book is said to include information about using social media in your job search. The 2011 book doesn't touch on social media, but does provide advice about searching for a job online, and the best ways to search for a job in general.

The exercises in this book are useful and force you to evaluate your own interests, if you are willing to complete them.

Other topics in the book include:
Best and worse ways to search for a job.
How to use a resume.
The most helpful job sites on the internet.
What interview questions can you expect and how to answer them.
Salary negotiation.
Starting my own business.
How to find more purpose in my next job.

Wow - 40 years. So many of today's jobs didn't exist in 1971, and vice versa.
